Lacy Barry is a Canadian paper artist and set designer who is known mainly for her work with paper and commercial bar interiors. This gorgeous metallic pillars shows various styles of architecture from different eras that have been juxtaposed together to create a truly unique sculpture. Her abilities and aesthetic range from retail window displays, interiors, live installations, events, video projects, commercials, web & print media and much more.
“Every time I travel to a new city, I find at least half of my holiday photos are of architecture,” Lacy Barry mentions from her artist statement. “Most cities have pretty distinctive landmarks, but without drawing an already over-saturated amount of attention to those, I ignore those and focus on the day-to-day architecture city residents live, work & reside in. Most cities are remembered by aspects of their past or present, making it clear a city skyline now can be made up of various sculpted dreams for the future… in architecture.”
She mixes horticulture into this structure to separate each section and also to illustrate the trends of plants found in and outside of each building. For example: The fern is a popular house plant making a decor necessity in most Victorian gothic homes, and then again, trend resurfacing, in later mid-century homes from the 1970’s.
